Windows 7: Remote Access Win 7 --> Win XP SP3

31 Mar 2010   #1

Remote Access Win 7 --> Win XP SP3

My mother is using my old computer (XP Pro SP3 x64), which still has many vital files and programs, while I am at school 400 miles away with my Win 7 Pro x64 laptop. Her computer is now acting "funny" and has <5 gb left of free space. She wants to start deleting stuff.

What can I do to remotely modify files, run programs (defrag, antivirus, etc) and view the other computer's files? I've personally never used remote access, and I've heard it was a pain to setup (esp dealing w/ firewalls). Threads here seem to suggest Live Mesh and TeamViewer. What is the best solution for the technology impaired?

edit: mesh seems to only offer vista/xp x32 and vista x64. Does it work for either of my systems?

TeamViewer is working fine for me. Mod can delete this post if desired. LOL, even 400 miles is not far away to avoid PC repair
